SHAH ALAM, Jan 20 — The First Selangor Plan (RS-1) is a comprehensive development plan which will help the state in facing the anticipated global economic slowdown sometime next year, said Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari.
He said the five-year planning agenda includes strategies and initiatives to drive the local economy, alongside making Selangor an industrial centre, as well as a smart, prosperous and livable state.
Several RS-1 projects will be strengthened, including the Integrated Development Region In South Selangor (Idriss) and the Sabak Bernam Development Area (Sabda).
“The strengths of these areas will be utilised, with various incentives to attract investors,” he said in a Facebook post earlier today.
“In addition, the sustainable development along Sungai Klang via the Selangor Maritime Gateway (SMG), the redevelopment of Stadium Shah Alam, the construction of a third port on Pulau Carey, and many more, will refresh Selangor’s economic landscape,” he said.
Amirudin added that RS-1 is also an opportunity for the state to strengthen its economic foundations.
“Selangor has a long-term plan to develop the state. All this planning is expected to bring great returns to the people,” he said.
During his New Year’s message to Selangor civil servants last week, the Menteri Besar said RS-1 is the culmination of the state’s development agenda that had been planned out over the past several years.
Presented in July last year, RS-1 has RM212.44 billion in total value which takes into account the implementation of comprehensive policies, projects, and initiatives between the state and Federal governments.
